Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam

1 Answer

Mic noise Hi. Like 1 or 2 minutes after I start a conversation, a white noise comes up and stays for a long a while. Surely enough, my counterpart can only hear that noise. I've been trying to change the set up, but it keeps going. Any clues? Thanks for the help!

Re: Mic noise

Hi manolopzo,

there is some pormenors that we can't never forget: see the record level of your mic and the distance between the mic and the speakers. if the distance is litle and the record level is high, you'll always have that feedback sound.

When i am on skype, i am not audible to my counterpart. what to do

well ... go to options, audio settings and under microphone choose your mic (it is possible that your usb cam has a mic too).
Basically if you see the level meters from the selected device moving, it's your counterpart that should set her speakers setting

Background noise from webcam

I had a similar situation. I have another capture card installed on my computer. I disabled the onboard device through Device Manager and then downloaded and installed the Newest version of the lifecam software, ver. 2.04, and then restarted the system. I also connected a microphone and used that rather than the mic built into the camera. So far, the loud white noise has not returned.

Good luck. I hope this helps and please let me know how it works out.

My webcam works fine but the microphone crackles all the time

Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

Microphone within webcam crackles

If you have another Mic I would use that. Otherwise I don't know how to solve this, check out this page though

Under cause there is something about disturbances by monitor, router, televesions and speakers. Try getting your camera away from other things and see if the audio straightens out.

Sound problems

You must go into the Tools Option where you sign in on MSN Messenger and change the microphone/speaker settings there. It is at the top of the window where you can see your status and all your contacts listed...the window that comes up upon "Sign In".

These override any settings you may have changed in the control panel. works with Windows Vista.

Crackling occurs after 1 minute of video&audio

Hi that all sounds to me to be a fairly classic "Electret" Mic problem. I have seen .. lol.. or rather, heard it, a few times B4.. the "Frying" sound you hear is the faulty electronics in the Electret microphone.. I would try replacing the Mic, if you can get one the same size, it shouldn't be too hard to Open the camera up, unsolder the old Mic, & replace it. There are really only a few standard Electret Mic inserts... As an aside, sometimes it can simply be a bad solder joints to the wires on the actual mic itself, ya may wanna try good reflow/resolder first B4 ya replace.. This sometimes is all it requires...
